How we can help
Your M&A strategy should be a logical extension of your growth strategy, and should be based on a disciplined and repeatable model that supports frequent, ever larger deals.
Articulate your aspirations, size the growth gap, align M&A strategy with your overall strategy, decide where to invest and divest, and prioritize opportunities
Define objectives and sources of value, develop an M&A program based on frequency, size and timing of deals, and build the team and processes that support consistent deal making
Generate a full list of targets, develop a screening framework, create an M&A roadmap and devise a plan to approach targets and build relationships
Understand the realities of scale versus scope, and why scale is not necessarily safe and scope is not necessarily risky
